"What is an under-the-table imaging request? Most radiologists encounter it at some point in their career, be it a foot radiograph for a nurse whose big toe was crushed by a stretcher wheel, a chest radiograph for a coughing ER physician or a gallbladder ultrasound for a healthy-looking resident with right upper quadrant pain. Instead of going through proper channels, the above patients may approach a radiologist or even a radiologic technologist directly and ask for what they think is an appropriate imaging study. There are multiple reasons why such unofficial imaging should be categorically denied and all patients should be directed to seek proper medical attention."
